I’m lovin’ Rondo’s new move

I’m lovin’ Rondo’s new move

Rajon Rondo has unveiled a new move this season: the quick change of direction.  It's a simple move, but it's so nasty.  He busted it out twice against the Jazz. Very simply… he slows down and makes it look like he's going to take the ball out and set the play and then BAM…. he [...]

The line for the eye wash begins to the left.  You'll need it to wash the crappiest game you'll watch all year off your retinas.  That, folks, was about 48 minutes of pure crap.  The good news is, the Celtics came out on top of this pile of dung 86-76… making them the only winners [...]

Video evidence of a defensive lapse, starring Rajon Rondo

Here's the situation: 3rd quarter, Celtics down 3 and fighting like hell to get ahead of the Phoenix Suns.  Phoenix has the ball out of bounds.
